Don’t let that Energy just be Waste - Bridgwater & Taunton College

A fantastic opportunity to welcome Bennamanns to the Cannington Campus Rodway Farm, their expertise and working knowledge came into full force as we toured our working farm.

In response to the Heart of the South West’s (HotSW) Local Skills Improvement Plan (LSIP), BTC have identified Rodway Farm as an area for significant investment and innovation as we aspire to support clean energy. The HotSW LSIP has identified Agri-Tech and Energy as key priorities for the region, emphasising the need to provide training for future skills. This is especially crucial given the rapid advancements in technology and the growing consideration of environmental impacts on agriculture in Somerset.

Our initial steps are to understand how our current processes of the farm operate and identify the best opportunity to capture, treat and process the natural energy sources that are otherwise going unutilised.

Our strategy for this project involves a building block approach, understanding what can be achieved through each phase and step of the process, before moving onto the next stage of development. Bennamanns are passionate about demonstrating the different levels of solution to our shared vision of clean energy.

The outcome of this project will not only provide BTC with a farming operation that is both more sustainable and efficient, but also offer valuable insights into implementing an energy solution while maintaining compliance and milk production. This practical experience will transform the lives of our students and wider community by equipping the future generations with the necessary skills for the modern farms of the not-too-distant future.
